Could be several things.
Is it new and the right one?
Sometimes the gasket gets loose and comes down a little. Try pushing it back up with something that won't puncture it (such as the non-writing end of a Bic).
Make sure that the basket is pushed in the handle all the way.

Good luck!

I have a rancillio epoca dual head espresso machine, there are two gages on the front of the machine, steam is coming out of the top gage

You will need to get that manometer changed. Get a hold of a rancilio dealer and tell them you need a steam manometer.

How do I reset the thermostat on the Rancillio?

By removing the top four screws on the lid (with the water tank removed) and looking inside the machine you will see three (3) thermostats. The two (2) thermostats on the top of the boiler do not reset. Leave those be. The 3rd thermostat which is mounted on the side of the boiler facing the front near the switches is the safety thermostat. If you look closely you will see that in-between the connectors is a small circular button. Carefully push this in with something long and narrow (not an object that will conduct electricity) and the thermostat will have been reset. If this does not work and the button does not press in, you will need to replace the safety thermostat.

Is there a repair manual for the rancillio silvia

There is not a repair manual for the silvia, the most that can go wrong is the 3 resettable thermostat on the top of the boiler, remove the 4 screws on top of the machine for access. Unless you run the boiler dry. Then if the thermostats did not kick off in time then you will need a new boiler. You will notice a discoloration in the water out of the group or the steam valve.

Rancillio Expresso Machine won't pump water through. Makes lound noise.

Hi There are a couple of things. 1. Your pump is not primed. Open the steam knob and push the middle switch. 2. Your intake hose is pinched or not connected to the pump, or your intake hose is not in the water tank.

Ground fault issue

This is not an unusual issue, but an unusual fix. When appliances that use water and heating elements use a ground fault breaker, it often thinks there is a problem to ground, since it is not the regular short to ground like an element. Move it to an area that has a regular outlet, and turn it on the first time. From then on, it should work right.

Rancillio Silvia Steaming problem

Sounds like your Rancilio needs a service, this problem could be caused by the boiler not working correctly, possibly a leak from the boiler or a valve malfunction causing a drop in pressure.
